driver is included in the official Linux kernels since version
2.6.20-rc1, or in the FUSE 2.6 software package. Please see the
next page for more help:

kernel is 2.6.19-1.2895.fc6 (not 2.6.20...!) fuse module is in use when I lsmod.

I don't understand the meaning of this message.

In short, it means ntfs-3g is way faster at development than any distro is at updating the kernel. (Fedora is already very quick there, go any faster and you get something like Rawhide. 2.6.20 hasn't even been released yet!)


For now, just be careful with umount of ntfs partitions.

Thanks for your answer. What do you mean: "just be careful with umount of ntfs partitions"?

I added lines for mounting ntfs in fstab, so I do not manage mount and umount of these partitions; is there any danger to proceed like that?
